    I was on one once and couldn't believe how small it felt while on it as opposed to just looking at it. I found it to be a well balanced motorcycle as well.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Always glad to meet new folks. Thanks for joining.

    You sure did luck out! Good for you. The Ultra Classic is a nice motorcycle. You'll enjoy it.

    Take off the tour pack and they look much more manageable. With the big seat, passengers may be more comfortable and move less making it easier to ride two up.

    We just did a 100 miles in the forest poker run for veterans awareness that took us up to Cactus Jack's in Salt Springs and Steel Away Forest Tavern in Astor Park.

    We may get even closer to ya on another run. But we usually end our runs in the Lake Weir area.

    If you hear about runs in your area, feel free to get them posted in our runs forum. We may make it up there one day.

    Thanks
